Wednesday Paper Works

STATIONARY AND GIFTS MADE WITH EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AND BOOKBINDING SKILLS

Born one fine sunny Wednesday Chrish & Jenny WEDNESDAY – PAPER WORKS stands above all for one thing: stationary and gifts made with careful design and handmade skill. For stationery and paper goods can be beautiful!

As a master bookbinder Jenny oversees the workshop, while nearby Chrish designs the products and gets absorbed in finding the perfect materials. They work closely together, sitting down often to discuss how to make the perfect folder, the advantage of a certain Swiss brochure, or choosing colors for embossing. Chrish and Jenny follow the old-fashioned handicraft ways together with contemporary design and bring the two into closer dialogue. Their ethos springs from this idea: Old-world technique meets modern design! Rather than aiming to improve the old or familiar, they want to unite the best of the two worlds.

Philosophy Wednesday Paper Works (direct quote Jenny & Chrish):
" We love handicraft and we love paper. We’re mad about design and the tactile beauty of things. Our aim is simple: to create products that fill you with joy and spark your sense of creativity.  That‘s why we design products suitable for work and leisure – products we love ourselves and are glad to share with others. We value working with our hands, touching and feeling actual objects. We try to bring a sense of deceleration and quality into everything we make. Paper is perfect for realizing all these goals. Paper encourages slowness, attentiveness and consideration. Paper is a counterbalance to everything virtual, to the delete key and the copy-paste ethos. We’re modern people who use computers yet treasure the old techniques, because the analogue is where we find true authenticity.

* Paper can do what only paper can! *

Our motive stems from one observation: the time we live in is increasingly more digital, virtual and hectic. Yet people have their own tempo – which may or may not coincide with the pace surrounding them. It might be better simply to slow down – but who has time for that? That explains why the recent trend towards speed swings back like a pendulum: people spend more time at home, engaged in making things that simultaneously fill their hands and feed their spirits. More cooking, knitting, music-making, gardening, drawing and writing. In these private projects we find a solace apart from mere utility. Here we find a secret wellspring of small successes – the joy of being with one’s self, of making-stuff-together, of simple happiness.

Naturally you can do everything more easily with a computer – find recipes, instructions, memos – just by bookmarking it, copying it, maybe printing it out, saving, forwarding or „liking“ it. But beauty doesn’t work that way. We want to create worthy frames for the things we care deeply about. Nothing is more marvelous than pulling a book from your shelf, crammed with your own projects, thoughts and doodles. That’s a true companion, a reference book and an personal treasure.

For all these reasons we say: * Paper is good for you *

We’re eclectics. Our designs tell stories and recall tales from the past – yet they’re always infused with a sense of now. A single book, for example, can embody the art of Jugendstil embossing, 1950s typographic skill and an indefinable whiff of the brand-new. We reinvigorate old expressive forms and styles, giving our designs a contemporary feel that’s also timeless. Our designs have a  certain warmth that we support with our choice in materials, colors and techniques. "
